Writing Poetry

Residential Writing Course with Paul Henry (Tutor) and Philip Lyons (Guest Reader): 24 - 29 July, 2017

This course invites both new and experienced poets to develop their art within a friendly, supportive environment. A combination of workshops, readings and one-to-one tutorials will explore the craft and mystery of writing poetry.

The value of learning from a broad range of poetic voices will underscore workshops partly inspired by the inner landscape of memory and by the stunning dales surrounding the retreat.

Tutorials will help you in the redrafting of your poems and in approaches to form. Above all else, 'Writing Poetry,' will offer you precious time and space to enjoy refining your work in a relaxed atmosphere and in the company of fellow poets. Bring along your favourite poems, to share in the evenings, and a musical instrument, if so inclined!

The course is held at The Garsdale Retreat set in the stunning beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Course Fees (includes fully catered meals):single/ensuite room: £750; single shared bathroom: £700; shared room (2 beds): £650
